Private Parties

A ChesterBoat charter provides a unique venue that’s sure to impress

We have four decades’ experience providing unforgettable events on the River Dee. With a fleet accommodating between 6 and 120 guests, a ChesterBoat charter makes a unique venue for any special occassion.

From our moorings in historic Chester, we sail upstream past stunning riverside homes and gardens, past the city limits and into tranquil Cheshire countryside. The river meanders through the Duke of Westminster’s Eaton Estate, up to the picturesque Aldford Iron Bridge. The river views form a fantastic backdrop for any special event – from weddings to hen parties, corporate events to school proms, and everything in between.
